Yen Press publishes fantasy novels in English

The "Natsu no Gakuensai 2022" event for Kadokawa's MF Bunko J light novel imprint announced on Sunday that Passione will produce the television anime based on Yū Shimizu and Asagi Tōsaka's The Demon Sword Master of Excalibur Academy (Seiken Gakuin no Maken Tsukai) light novels.

Yen Press is publishing the light novels in English, and it describes the story:

Awakening from magical stasis after a thousand years, the Dark Lord Leonis suddenly finds himself in the body of a ten-year-old boy! He quickly meets Riselia, a girl confronting the Voids, creatures that have nearly exterminated humanity. Determined to uncover the mysteries of this strange new era, Leonis enrolls in Excalibur Academy, a school that trains students to fight back against these enigmatic monsters. Could the Voids hold some connection to Leonis's past?

Kadokawa published the first volume of Shimizu's novel series with Tōsaka's illustrations in May 2019, and the novels are ongoing.

Asuka Keigen launched a manga adaptation of the novels in Kadokawa's Shōnen Ace magazine in November 2019, and the series is ongoing.

Shimizu launched the Blade Dance of Elementalers (Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance) light novel series in 2010, and ended the series with its 20th volume in March 2019. Artist Issei Hyōju (MM!) drew the manga adaptation in Media Factory's Monthly Comic Alive magazine from 2012 to January 2017. The light novel series inspired a television anime in 2014.
